President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, reacted for the first time on the ongoing probes of Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, and the Interim Management of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, by the National Assembly.

The president, who spoke after observing his Eid prayers at the fore court of the presidential villa, expressed disappointment that political appointees have abused his trust.

When asked how he feels about recent revelations coming out from the EFCC and the Niger Delta Commission, he said: “There has been abuse of trust by people trusted by the previous administration and this administration.

“A number of assets have been recovered and some monies. But we have introduced TSA where all the monies are taken and I said asset should be sold and the money be put through TSA so that it can be identified at any level.

“And I will see who will come after us and take it back again to those who misappropriated public funds.”
